The first version of the Bibby and probably the most different of all the years. The Bibby gets stiffer and fatter every year, which I think is a great thing, but there is something to be said for the original ski that is very playful. I had some FKS's on them for a season and used them as my inbounds pow day bounce around ski. If I wasn't in the mood to charge hard and go big I'd take these guys out and just butter and bounce my way around the pillows. With their rocker nose and tail, flat underfoot and soft flex they were really fun for those kinda days.
Last year I had some Dynafit bindings on them and they were my backcountry ski. The weight was good enough, but the ski was too soft for Dynafit bindings and while they were (as mentioned before) very playful I found that they just weren't beefy enough for when I wanted to get rad. They were fine at speed, but their stomping power in variable snow wasn't that great.
Super sick ski. No ski is perfect, so i cant give it a ten, but i def highly recommend it if your looking for a pow ski with some versatility.
Performance. This ski is the do all ski. Of course, it floats awesome in pow. Super fun to slash and surf around on. Stable on smaller drops (i havent taken it off anything over like 15 feet) and a great pow ski.
On groomers, it surprised me. It actually held an edge quite well. Of course, it has a huge turning radius, but it will definitely work just fine if the snow gets tracked out and you want to rip a groomer or two, or your getting back to the lift.
Park. Its actually super fun in the park. On rails the fatness is stable, but obviously its size makes spinning on and off rather difficult. The rocker makes butters fun and easy, and its super fun on jumps. Big and stable.
Super sick. The rocker seems to be a little smaller than skis like the hellbent, which improves its hard snow performance. The waist is also fat enough to float amazingly, but still manageable and not ridiculous. Graphics are alright. Not the best graphic, but pretty cool. The dolls on the tail are a lil creepy though.
For sure. One of the cheaper pow skis on the market. Def worth its price.
Its a 186, and im 6'2" so it was a perfect fit for me. But because its rockered, and fairly soft, i would say it would work for anyone 5'9"ish and taller, as long as they are a good skier.
The ski is fairly soft at the tip and tail, while stiffer underfoot. Its definitely a soft pow jib ski, but not a total noodle. Stiffer than hellbents for sure though. Pretty much the perfect softness for buttering and jibbing, but stiff enough to rip.
The bases on these things are like steel. I ski at big sky, which has rocks everywhere. On top of that my dumbass friend led us into a rock field. I had a couple small scratches in the base, but no deep shots whatsoever. I was very impressed. the topsheet also seems to be holding up better than most.
Overall, this ski has blown my mind. It has done everything I have asked of it without a problem. And I would just like to add that Moment's service is the best in the business. Between an individual warranty issue with another pair of skis and the Bibby recall, there are only good things to say about Moment's customer service.
I have only had about a week on these skis, but they have seen a fairly wide variety of conditions including powder, crud, groomers, trees, and a bit of park. In the 10 inches of pow I had them in, they absolutely killed it. I got the surfy feeling but never felt out of control. In crud, they are much better than I would have expected. The rocker helps with your tips not catching in the chopped up powder. I haven't really had a chance to use them in park a lot and don't really plan to. I have Reno Rockers for that.
The topsheet is just plain sick and I love the graphics.
I paid about $550 for these and I would pay that price again in a heartbeat. A truly great ski for the price.
Im 5'8 140 and these skis are a good size for me. I mounted them at recommended, -3.5 cm from center, and am very happy with that spot.
The ski is stiffer underfoot than I expected, and that really helps with stability. The tips and tails are obviously softer because of the rocker, but do not compromise stability a whole lot. Also, these skis seem pretty torsionally stiff which is nice for high speed. Overall, a really good flex.
So far, the bases have held up extremely well despite being run over a fair amount of early season rocks. The topsheets are chipping a bit, but that is to be expected with any sidewall construction ski.
overall i would say that this ski is a all mountain ski for just having fun on you can rip it in the park or pow it holds up on ice prefect all mountain ski
Yes it did i used Bibby's at momentum and then bought a pair off him for just playing aorund in the park they were sick so easy to press on.
look is kill i would vote best top sheet of 08/09 the feel is like a nomral ski
I bought mine for 260 bibby used them for his segment in level 1 and through out the year but for new at 600 i think is a very good deal
only one size 186 and i'm only 5.11 like 150lb and its fine
The flex on the bibby is just prefect its still buttery and soft becasue of the rocker but it is still stiff at the same time. Also the rocker is bigger in the tip then the tail of ski
Well the top sheet is pretty abused alot of chips but bibby used them pretty hard and its just the top sheet. But the base is actually mint and same with the edges moment makes the best bases around
